Klebsiella pneumoniae treatment

The aim of this work was to investigate the antibacterial activity of clove (Syzygium aromaticum) essential oil against multidrug resistant clinical strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae ESBL+. Materials: The antibacterial activity of the oil was tested against standard strain Klebsiella pneumoniae ATCC 700603 and 60 clinical strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from patients with infections of the respiratory tract, abdominal cavity, urinary tract, skin and from the hospital environment…

These bacteria (Klebsiella pneumoniae) live in the intestines and lungs and may cause pneumonia, meningitis, and other diseases. The bacteria are surrounded by a capsule and this protects them from being consumed by macrophages. SEM X9600. **On Page Credit Required**

K. pneumoniae can cause the disease Klebsiella pneumonia. They cause destructive changes to human lungs inflammation and hemorrhage with cell death (necrosis) that sometimes produces a thick, bloody, mucoid sputum (currant jelly sputum).

Klebsiella pneumoniae bacterium. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Klebsiella pneumoniae bacterium in a mouse lung. It is caught in a neutrophil extracellular trap (NET, green), a web of extruded chromatin that contains antimicrobial components that kill the bacterium. Neutrophils are the most abundant cell of the immune system.
